Downtown, I spotted a very nice place I currently visit quite often. You can easily get there by trams 3, 9 or 14, getting out at Vodičkova stop, but it is also just a five-minute walk from Václavské náměstí. Though it is called a “café”, it is in fact a regular restaurant. The menu is rich and the prices are reasonable. As they promote on their website, it is an “oasis of peace in downtown Prague”.
The name comes from the fact that it started as a place where the employees would either be rehabilitated or rehabilitating drug users. However, you couldn’t make that out just like that – the staff are usually very kind and compliant. It is a family place as there are separate smoker and non-smoker rooms and even a small playground for the kids. At the same time they sell Czech handmade ceramics.
Really cool is the design of the interior, menus and so on. Everywhere you can find advertisements from the beginning of the 20th century – most of the time they are really funny and worth seeing. I would recommend having a beer and the traditional “Tartar” steak (minced raw steak you eat with toast, onion, garlic and pepper).
Come and try!
